Sacramento bicycle accident statistics

Over 4,000 employees commute to their workplaces by bicycle in Sacramento each day. Hundreds of cyclists ride bicycles while running errands throughout the city. This is excellent for the environment, and it's wonderful for the health of the people who enjoy their bicycles, but riding a bike can also be dangerous. Let's take a look at the statistics as they apply to Sacramento bicycle versus car accidents.

Over the last decade and a half, approximately 3,200 bicyclists suffered injury in accidents with motor vehicles. A total of 38 died in such accidents. In most cases, these bicycle accidents happened from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. These are the busiest times for rush hour commuters.

In Sacramento, the intersection of Fruitridge Road and Stockton Boulevard is the most dangerous streets for bicyclists. In 15 years, 26 bicyclists got hurt in car accidents at this intersection. The next most dangerous intersection was 12th Street and North B Street. Nineteen bicyclists were hurt in crashes at this intersection. Sixteen people were hurt at the West El Camino and Truxel intersection. As for the most dangerous neighborhoods for bicycle crashes, those were Valley Hi, Downtown, East Sacramento and Midtown.

The high accident rates associated with the above-referenced areas of Sacramento could simply be a reflection of the fact that they are high traffic areas for cars and bicyclists. It may not be a sign that there's actually a problem with the way these roads were designed.

If you or a loved one were seriously hurt due to the reckless or unlawful actions of a See where Sacramento bicyclists are hit by cars most often," Phillip Reese, May 17, 2017
